Opening Gifts

Did I read it right that we don't open our gifts at the reception in front of guests? I really don't want to if we don't have to but not sure what our guests will expect. I hate this. Most of our guests will give money in a card

In my experience the gift opening takes place after the wedding festivities. DH and I opened ours together on our dining room floor the next day and had a blast. For my sister's wedding (much larger) she had my Mom and I come over to help keep track of what everybody gave them.

It usually takes place after the wedding! We did same as Jess! It was just DH and I in our living room. It was a lot of fun!! One of my friends did it with her and her DH's parents. It's up to you, but you def don't have to do it in front of guests :)

Thank you ladies. I'm glad we don't have to do it in front of everyone. Like I said most will give us money that we will take for our honeymoon but this makes me feel better
